We stayed 2 nights as we were going to a wedding locally and I haver to stay even if we were not going to the wedding it would have been worth a 400 mile round trip ! Sean is on top of everything in terms of quality and customer service both in terms of booking and looking after you when... More

We had two lovely nights staying at Fantinos in Sowerby, which is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Thirsk. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The bed was huge! The food was lovely, we were well looked after and would recommend as a place to stay.

Last minute decision on a drive up to Scotland to stop for a night - turned out to be a gem! Fantino's is classy and cool spot - room was great and the chef waited for us to arrive despite us getting there after kitchen was closed. Food was delicious to boot. Breakfast was also great, Sean and staff all... More

Had a meal and had heard disappointing reviews on the food. However the food was amazing can't complain at all but the staff were very slow and not very attentive. The front of house lady was quite abrupt, not rude but not very friendly, all the staff wore jeans and a top, a bit sloppy and it showed in the... More

Stayed in this hotel, staff very helpful rooms large and comfortable. Only downside, they don't do evening meals on a Monday, that said only a 10 min stroll in to town where there were a good selection of pubs and restaurants

We were in Thirsk for a wedding and tried hard to find somewhere to stay that had charm and character but was modern - Fantino's is this! We stayed two nights and had a spacious room, a tasty breakfast with excellent coffee and a fantastic meal in the restaurant on our first night. The staff were friendly and attentive and... More

This is essentially an email sent to the restaurant with their reply. If ever something goes awry I always give the opportunity to put things right. A sincere apology and a small gesture goes a long way. If I was a restauranteur I'd be mortified if someone who had taken proper steps to clarify and order their food then left... More

Thank you for the review. I'm sorry we failed to deliver our usual high standard of food as you can see from the vast majority of reviews we on the whole get it right. As we didn't charge you for your main course and tried very hard to encourage you to order something else I'm not sure that there's much... More

We were in Thirsk visiting family and had to entertain ourselves for an evening as our family had a pre planned evening. I googled places to eat in Thirsk, as we are Southerners and didn't want to stray to far. As it turns out, we only had to walk to the end of the road. We had a really enjoyable... More

Very impressed with the attention to detail, customer service was fantastic. We very much enjoyed the whole experience from start to finish. Drinks in the little courtyard after checking in to our beautiful room, followed by a superb Italian meal in the restaurant which had a very relaxed comfortable atmosphere. The staff were very Attentative without being imposing. The room... More

Although we live quite close, this was our first visit to Fantinos. We visited for Sunday lunch for my husbands birthday. I had previously asked if they did brunch. The owner asked me to call back In a week to check on this which I did. However in the end lunch was the only option - hopefully they might consider... More
